Mostly, you need some elements in you cartoclient.tpl template.
Il you look at the cartoclient.tpl, you'll notice several elements 
related to editing :

 - edit.css link,
 - edit li element (label4),
 - corresponding folder (folder4),
 - (not compulsary folder for editing end-user help),
 - include for the third group's tools in the toolbar,
 - and the edit_div element at the end of template.

You'll have to add those different elements to your project specific 
cartoclient.tpl template if you want the editing plugin to work.
Also don't forget to load the plugin on both client and server side.

The edit.ini file must contain a parameter "edtiLayers" that lists the 
layers you want to be editable. This must correspond to postGIS layers. 
You have an example in the demoEdit project.
